Love at first sight
like the romance
in my hands
in afternoon light
in a room
In the quiet

I wrote this poem for Carry on Tuesday, which each week provides a prompt that participants are to use wholly or partly in an original poem or prose piece.
The prompt for Tuesday, August 17, comes from the first sentence of chapter 1 of Joseph Heller's 1961 best-selling novel Catch-22: It was love at first sight.
